Re: Hatch Cover-Gain access to sending unit-CJ gastank
Id make the access cover 1 of 2 ways.
1st find a jeep and cut the area from the bed slightly larger than the hole you are going to cut. that way the cover fits over the ribs. go to ACE and buy (Im not sure what they are called) it is a female sleeve that you fit into a hole you drill, then run a bolt with a flair tool on it. the sleeve is about $0.20 ea, and the flare tool is about $0.50. used them on my dash and love em. put a beed of sylicone around the edge or use rubber strips to make a gasket. that is the easyest and cheepest way to make an access cover to a place (hopefully youll never need to reaccess. However after replacing my tank and sending unit only to find my sending unit didnt seal, then changing the intank fuel pump on his Grand Cherokee...ALL AUTOS NEED THIS!!!!!

2nd How about a billit gas cap cover (like what you put on the side of your jeep) for that matter make one out of dimond plate or brushed aluminum.
3rd just use the method for the 1st idea and just screw it down with self tapping screws.
Id herculine both sides of the cover (to seal it and mach it to the rest of the floor pan)
